Film-maker Ali Abbas Zafar has hit the jackpot with his third Bollywood film. “Sultan”, a 170-minute wrestling saga starring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma, is breaking box-office records this month and looks set to become the most successful Hindi film of all time. As expected it reported tremendous performance through out its opening weekend and received overwhelmed response from audience. Critics have also reviewed it with favorable comments, which generated strong word of mouth about it.
Salman Khan starrer Sultan is running with its great effect over the big screens these days. The film performed outstandingly in its first week and the second week was also too good. Total 2 weeks business of the film has resulted in 277+ Crores incomes for the film makers and everyone is so astonished by this response from the audience from all over. Though now the third week has started from today and the film is facing bit downfall firstly due to release of new films on the box office and secondly it is the 3rd week now so obviously the occupancy is expected to lower down than the first weeks.
In weekdays, asusual it faced considerable drops and minted 4.08 crores of Monday, 3.72 crores of Tuesday and 3.42 crores of Wednesday. On the last day of week i.e. Thursday, Sultan reported slight more drop and estimated to do the business of 3.51 crores as its 16th day collection. After two weeks, total collection of the movie will become 277.96 crores on domestic box office. So far Salman Khan starrer has shattered many records and now at the fourth position among top highest grossing movies of all time in Bollywood.
By the third weekend, it is positively expected to surpass the lifetime business of Dhoom 3 (284.27 crores including Hindi, Tamil & Telugu versions). Wednesday was pretty similar to Thursday with a slight fall across the country and after it as the new weekend has started so the film has got better public than the weekdays. Blockbuster of the year Sultan is now top movie as the film has crossed the magical mark on the 16th day. It has also covered its cost already from the 1 week service and now the film is running in total profit.
After such a big amount of income in first 2 weeks now the film is heading to cross the 500 Crores mark in lifetime. Start of this weekend has been noticed quite well even after other latest options in the theatres. Third Friday i.e. 17th day income of Sultan has been recorded at around 2.14 Crores. Third week is expected to see mix reaction from the audience. It can face a fall in the overall audience rush and excitement due to new flicks but will still has a good hold over the major number of screens. Cinema reports has now audience occupancy of about 30-40% and if this continues to fall lower than Sultan might get a fall back from the box office and end up sooner.
